Power line serving North Lake Tahoe customers back on

Nevada Appeal Staff Reports

Sierra Pacific Power Co.’s 120,000 volt line serving North Lake Tahoe customers is clear of fire danger from the Waterfall fire and is re-energized, spokeswoman Karen Foster said Saturday.

The request for conservation issued Friday asking customers to avoid using major appliances such as clothes washers, fryers and dishwashers has been lifted.

Fire officials asked power be cut to the line for safety reasons. This was not an emergency, and customers saw no service interruptions or problems. Service was provided using alternate lines, she said.
